On Trend Tuesday: Selena Gomez

Via Pinterest/JustJared

You girls know that I love Selena Gomez's style. I love that she's girly and quirky without being over the top.  I'm not even sure where was wearing this outfit but I just had to recreate it. I love that it screams Spring/Summer. Her outfit is really simple and really the focus of her look is the coral blazer.

Three Way Thursday: The Leopard Wedge

Boot: $34.90

You guys know that I love dressing for comfort right? Well nothing is more comfortable than this little bootie. I know that at first glance you wouldn't be able to wear a leopard shoe too many ways. Well, guess what. You so totally can. Here are three different ways to wear it.

The first look is for the trendy girl that wants a little edge. Can't you just see yourself wearing this look to the coffee shop or shopping?

The second look is perfect for the office. I love the sweetness of the coral color and I love that the colors in the accessories tie the look in with the boots.



Blazer//Top//Skirt//Bag//Earrings//Bracelet//Bangles//Watch//Ring//Ring


The third look is perfect for just going to the movies or hanging out. I love that it has some edginess to it and
that skull bag is just about my favorite thing at the moment.

Must Pin Monday

Windsor Pinterest


Well girls unless you've been off the internet and not heard us raving about this site then you are probably aware of a little addiction here in the Windsor office called Pinterest. To say that we have a problem is putting it mildly. Here are just a few reasons why we know we have a problem:


  • We consistently reference Pinterest in every day conversation.
  • Our browser automatically opens to Pinterest
  • When asked about our inspiration we ask "What didn't you check our board titled Photoshoot? It's all there"
  • Every pretty image we see is followed by "I'm SO pinning that to My Style Board"
  • We constantly crack ourselves up reading all the little sayings on our "hehehe" board. (Yep that's the real name for one of my personal pinboards.)
  • After pinning so many great recipes I am gaining the confidence to try and enter the kitchen again! I mean how many microwaves can I set on fire right? Pinterest makes it look so simple!
  • My shopping lists for my closet and my fridge are solely dictated by one of my pinboards. Thank goodness there's an app for Pinterest!
  • It's not about who you're following on Facebook or Twitter it's all about who you're following on Pinterest!
So now that we've shared our addiction what are you waiting for?! Go follow us and check out what inspires day to day.

Three Way Thursday: The Perfect Red Dress

Red Dress: $39.90
We're back (finally)! I know we took longer than expected to start shooting again but we're back on track. We won't bore you with details and we'll get right into the post. We're trying a different look so tell us what you think. We're listening.

1. The first look is perfect for going out to after work cocktail/dinner. It's so chic and simple but the gold accessories make the color really pop. We replaced the bow belt that comes with the dress with a little gold skinny belt to bring the whole look together. It's dressy enough to go out but it's still something that you could have worn during the day.

2. The second look brings two of my favorite color combos. Sometimes black and red can make you look like a sunburned bumble bee but not in this case. I love the shoes in this outfit and the fact that the bows on them totally compliment the bow on the belt.

Earrings//Shoes//Clutch//Bracelet




3. The third look is perfection for the office! I love the black and red and the hints of leopard in the accessories. In some cases red and leopard can equal death but in this case this combo equals chic-ness. Not even sure if that's a word but I'm making it one.

It is so cute and the color is perfect. It's not too pink and not too neon and it's the perfect shade of coral. You can wear it in the Spring and Summer and it will become a staple for years.

Inspiration Wednesday: Still Thinking Pink

Add caption

Look at that picture up there. Bask in its prettyness. That little pink bag is on my lust list and I swear I will own it one day. I think there is nothing more classy and cute than a pink quilted Chanel bag. In the meantime, I will use this as an inspiration for an outfit that I can afford today.

 

The colors are fun and vibrant and they are perfect for pushing us into Spring since we seemed to have skipped Winter this year on the West coast.

On Trend Tuesday: Emma Stone

Via Pinterest

As you may very well know we have a huge style crush on Emma Stone. She can do absolutely no wrong in our eyes. Even when we think she may have faltered in the end we see that she always rocks what she's wearing even if it is a little more forward. That's why we love the girl, she knows how to take risks and not take herself to seriously. One of our fav looks was from the 2011 MTV Movie Awards. We loved it so much that we begged our buyer to please recreate the dress for us. Thank fully we work with amazing buyers and she was able to pull of a great lookalike under $100!!

Must Read Monday: Existence by Abbi Glines

Amazon: $4.99

What It's About:
Brace yourselves it's another paranormal young adult book. I know what you're thinking. Gahhhh another one?! Really? Well, my friends blame Amazon. I keep searching for books that have a different subject matter but I am in a book rut...again. I was feeling kinda blah when I stumbled across this book. I had actually downloaded this book some time ago but just barely got around to reading it. For some reason I kept skipping it. I'm so glad that I finally made myself read this book because I was actually very pleasantly surprised. The story is about Pagan, a girl who just happens to see dead people. She is kinda just coasting along life until she gets into a car accident and death (yeah like the guy with the scythe--death) rescues her. Then he kinda starts following her around. Mind you she has a boyfriend who absolutely adores her but she can't stop thinking about Dank or the spirits that keep following her telling her it's her time.

Why You Should Read It:
Names aside (really Dank, Pagan???) this story is actually really well written and it's a fun read. I know that it seems like a predictable read but I promise the ending makes it SO worth it. I didn't expect that ending to happen and I am excited for the sequel. I mean with an ending like the one it had it can't not have a sequel. I loved the interaction between Pagan a Dank and I loved the relationship she had with Leif. All in all this book was a fun read and I totally recommend it. Let me know if you pick it up and if there are any books I should pick up next.
